We’ve got great news for macOS and Linux users! Total War: WARHAMMER II, the second installment of the epic fantasy strategy series, is coming to macOS and Linux this year. Feral Interactive announced this awesome development yesterday.
New to Total War: WARHAMMER II?
Total War: WARHAMMER II is the critically-acclaimed follow up to Total War: WARHAMMER. The grand strategy game puts players in command of one of four fantastical races. Your challenge is to wage a war of conquest in order to stabilize or disrupt the apocalyptically powerful Great Vortex.
TW:WII’s campaign is set across four strikingly distinct continents. We promise — it’s extremely engrossing and narrative. Get ready to visit tropical Lustria and icy Naggaroth. The advanced Isle of Ulthuan, and the deserts and bright wilds of the sprawling Southlands. It’s a truly breath-taking campaign of exploration across a fantasy world.
Total War: WARHAMMER II’s Campaign Map
On the campaign map, you engage in turn-based empire building. You’ll have to manage teeming settlements, recruit vast armies, negotiate alliances, and wage war. At your command legendary heroes, spellcasters, dragons and mutated mounts. Thorough battle plans are an absolute must for success. Your tactics include ambushes, cavalry charges, and brutal war machine attacks. You can choose from either single-player or multiplayer campaigns.
“The race to control the Great Vortex adds a thrilling dimension to the campaign because every advance players make raises the stakes for their faction,” said David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive. “Not only must players contend with rivals for the Vortex’s power, but also with the dire consequences of success – each time they increase their control over the Vortex, the monstrous forces of Chaos are released into their lands…”
What’s the plan for Total War: WARHAMMER II hitting new platforms?
We’ve got very good reason to be patient. Total War: WARHAMMER II will combine with the first and the planned third installment to create the Mortal Empires campaign. There are also plans for additional content packs that will result in the single largest Total War experience ever. It’s safe to say we can expect more players with the expansion to new platforms. So there’s probably no better time to pick it up than now.
